Music Monday: The Blood Beetroots - Spank (Religion Remix) (via religion)
There are plenty of people making new electronic music but few are dropping remix hits like Jared Poythress and Nick Dew, aka Religion.
Their buildups and key samples keep your head bobbing and body moving. Since they’ve interacted in the studio with the likes of Flo Rida and Childish Gambino I can’t wait for the hits to keep coming.
If you enjoyed this track check out Boys Noize Ich R U (Religion Remix). And if “You wanna dance!?” Look for a full EP from Religion soon!

Technology Thursday: iPhone 3GS
My grand idea of spending a month living with a dumbphone was short lived for two reasons:
- It was a bad idea.
- The generosity of my lovely sister, Carson Rahrig.
Over spring break I was lucky enough to move forward in the world of technology; giving up a 6 year old dumbphone for a soon to be 4 year old smartphone. What smartphone you ask? In case you missed the title, it’s the lovely iPhone 3GS:
I am glad to once again be back in the world of touch screens and cloud data but for a phone I once waited months for it isn’t anything special today. However, I won’t complain because it’s capable of doing everything that makes my life easier (email, calendar, web browsing) and that’s good enough for me!
However, my dumbphone experience lasted a little over a week and I wanted to share some things I learned and experienced:
- notification overload - this phenomenon completely went away. I was no longer bothered by notifications regarding email, Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Soundcloud, etc. It was somewhat of a forced escape but I’ve use the “Do Not Disturb” feature in iOS on a regular basis since I’ve started using it
- calendars - for those of you that don’t know I use Google Calendar, too much and when I was unable to access my seven different calendars I was a little lost but I manged to make it to work, class, meetings and other extra curricular activities on time
- phone numbers - I don’t know anyone’s phone number from memory aside from my direct family. This scared me.
- sharing - I was less able to share. At one point I wanted to take a photo and post it in a Facebook group but that certainly wasn’t possible.
- text message inbox limit - completely forgot this was a thing. Clearing your text message inbox? That’s so 2006!
- battery life - the battery life was still amazing, the phone lasted two days without a recharge!
My dumbphone and I had a great spring fling but I’m glad I’ve begun the move back into the world of the modern smartphone.
I’ll be using this iPhone 3GS until the release of the Samsung Galaxy S4 in Q2.
Looking for forward to next week and my first “Trendy Thursday” post.
Wordup Wednesday: Farzad Yousefi
Farzad Yousefi. A friend. A pal. A bro. This one’s for you.
Farzad has helped me accomplish a lot over this past year and I can’t thank him enough. Hopefully this blog post will serve as a small token of my appreciation.
For those of you who don’t know Farzad he is an extremely dedicated and hardworking individual. He strives for the best in all he does and achieves it. He’s also the kind of guy who sees the positive in everything.
Farzad and I get along so well we even applied for the Best Summer Job in America together! Check out our application at clarkeandfarzad.com
Thanks for putting up with me man, I appreciate it. I’m looking forward to working with you over the next year to accomplish great things.
Tall Tuesday: Shelves
"Excuse me sir, would you mind helping me?" a short elderly woman asks on a trip to the grocery store. I reply with an inquisitive, “Sure?”
"Would you mind grabbing that sauce off the top shelf?"
"Not a problem!" As I hand the elderly woman one of the last jars of sauce.
Similar requests have been asked while I’m shopping at the grocery store. Also, these requests aren’t limited to the grocery store. I’m used to getting things off the selves of bookcases, closets, pantries and cabinets.
At any rate, next time you need a helping hand getting an object slightly out of your reach don’t hesitate to give me a call and I’ll use my power of height to save the day.
These are the facts of reaching things while 2m tall.
Music Monday: Clinton Sparks - Boston Bass (via clintonsparks)
Clinton Sparks is one of my favorite producers and if you’ve never heard of him, Get Familiar!
I loved the Irish folk music sample combined with a traptastic baseline giving me the perfect way to wish you all a belated Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

This is my friend Bill Han, he’s pretty good at basketball. I’m sharing this image today because it encapsulates the feeling of the entire SEC IM basketball team, during every game.
